Living in the South Pacific may have helped with that one.

 

Or near the UK... where a few are flying around...

What! :unsure: RT started this. :)

Yes. I know I am always the one who is responsible. -_- :)

 

While F-ALSE is plain wrong in Britain, sister ship F-ALKE is absolutely correct in Germany! "Falke" means "falcon", this is always an appropriate denomination to an aircraft.

Malicious voices say the transport weed which was produced in a Martin B-10 grower greenhouse before, But I won't support that view.

I was thinking more that the Pacific roundel, with bars and no red, identifies it as a Seafire. I don't think these were used in the UK.

I did mean that there are a few survivors in the UK which are accesable in museums or can be seen during airshows...

That's the trick of succesfull black lying too: Lace the lie with facts wich suits the listener!
Not that I'm a compulsive liar, but since I noticed the trick I can't hold myself from testing it from time to time - One could be in need of a good lie someday, in wich case it will be good to be routined ;-)
Beside it's good to know as routine makes it easier to spot when other do the trick, wich happens almost daily in politics :-o

Talking of: I have just read a story about an illegal transport of explosives to My hometown during the German occupation:
By an initial phonecall the couriers was warned about "potholes in the road underways" but the delieverence was much needed hence It was decided to drive anyhow.
The two involved was actually policeman of the at the point still functioning Danish policeforce (the policeforce became interned mid September 1944) and the one decided to operate i full uniform with the other in civil clothing detained in handcuffs.
As feared they became stopped at a German checkpoint where the uniformed policeman explained the 'prisoners transportation' as being in a hurry due to the ferry at the end of the road. But curiosity struck some of the Germans who asked to the crime of the scared looking civilian: "He's a communist" explained the policeman and this statement got all the Germans redheaded suggesting that an execution at the streetside would be the easiest, however the policeman kept his pokerface and claimed that in that case He had to ask for name and numbers to pass on to GESTAPO when they would ask to the whereabouts of their prisoner. This calmed the soldiers a little down, however they stil mugged the handcuffed 'communist' and let the car continue under coarse shouting.
The trick worked: Telling a lie that suited the listener diverted the attention from the box of explosives He was sitting on :-o

This may not bee too funny, but I could not help myself and create a slapstick version of this:

 

 

German solider: "Stop! What are you carrying?"

 

Danish policeman: "A prisoner, a communist!"

 

German soldier: "Why don't you shoot him right away?"

 

Danish policeman: "He sits on explosives. We are driving to ~ artillery proving ground, there he will be blown up!"

 

German soldier: :o B) :P ! (lets them pass.)

 

 

Cast:

 

Danish policeman #1, squadron leader, the one who talks: Ove Sprog√łe

Danish policeman #2, always grins and nods when his boss talks: Morten Grunwald

Prisoner (actor is specialist for the appropriate facial expression): Poul Bundgaard

German soldier (always the bad and stupid guy): Ove Verner Hansen

 

Armand knows whom I mean. :D

Not particularly bec. in my/your scene the camera is not on the feet. Maybe the feet of the prisoner are seen but for credibility they must have dressed him red socks.

 

 

BTW: Aren't they mostly known by Ossies?

 

Mostly so, but not only. The Olsen Gang was popular in (communist) East Germany for the anti-capitalist attitude of the movies. The (nowadays) East German  stations broadcast them every now and then.

 

("Ossies" = ironic expression for East Germans.)
